Jake Owen proposes to girlfriend Lacey Buchanan on stage

Country singer Jake Owen did on of the riskiest things a man in love can do: he proposed to his girlfriend in a public venue. Happily for him, it went well.

While performing in Vero Beach, Fla., his hometown, Owen asked Lacey Buchanan to be his wife.

She said yes and the two engaged in a passionate kiss and embrace. The hometown crowd cheered.

“You’re probably wondering where your ring is, right?” he jokingly asked. Owen then referred to the lyrics to “Don’t Think I Can’t Love You,” the song he was singing when he proposed: “I can’t just buy you a big diamond ring or a big old house on the hill. I promise I’ll love you forever and ever and ever.”

As if it wasn’t clear to everyone, Owen later tweeted, “I’m a happy man. Life is complete.”

Get your daily dose of “Aww” by watching video of the moment on YouTube here and here.
